General Relativity (GR) / Quantum Field Theory (QFT)
Lectures in general relativity/quantum field theory can be chosen from the list given below. The module is subdivided into core courses, specialized courses, and the advanced seminar. More information on the contents of each lecture and required knowledge can be found from the description of the lectures, see links.
Credit points and module descriptions are given according to the new examinations regulations.
